Despite big fields, favourites have a good record and John Gosden has won two of the last four divisions. TOAST OF THE TOWN represents him here and she can go one better after being caught on the line by Sea Meets Sky over this trip at Ascot. Bohemian Dance, who started favourite, was beaten a long way and looks held. Muthmera looked in need of the run on her return at Sandown and only faded in the closing stages while Rosaceous showed up well for a long way at Leicester and will enjoy the quick ground. Alnawiyah showed potential in her first season and, being by Dalakhani, will be more at home over this trip while Pearl Street and the newcomer Bonanza Creek are others to note.
